Excellent song, very well played - while we're on Dead covers with beautiful west coast steel, check out Greg Leisz on 'Watkins Family Hour's 'Brokedown Palace'.

I struggle with sustain on certain guitars as well. Ultimately, it simply changes how you play. I had a push pull way back that sounded incredible- everything I wanted tonewise- but naturally seriousl ...

I brought a Fulawka into the shop for Buck to work on one day- he was deep in conversation with Franklin Sr- both wonderful men.

I've wondered about that too- as far as I can tell Williams is the only company that offers that option with a new guitar. In my dreams I imagine a strong lightweight flight- worthy recessed wheeled c ...

I think it's pretty genre dependent- often steel is the secondary instrument. In my world, there's an assumption that if you're a steel guy, you can operate a dobro/lap steel as well, and probably str ...

I bought a excellent G2 for 3k last year. I'd consider that a good price. I bring it up to remind the uninterested commentators above how valuable their unsolicited insight is.

Solved! Loose screw or no screw connecting crank to the crossroad- can't tell in that tiny oily cavity- makes sense for the systemic RKL trouble- thanks Jon.
